of elevation, these are very important to us. precipitation, that is our bread and butter. what form does it fall into a range versus no, how much of it falls? the timing of precipitation. these are critical factors that are engaged in such work. the variability is where our vulnerability is come. this includes drought, storm intensity. what is the severity of drought in the future? how much worse will storms get in the future? what will this mean for water quality? of course, there is a sea level rise. this is a critical factor for those of us along the coast. climate change affects the hydrological. precipitation, compensation. -- condensation. we are seen as first responders to the potential effect of climate change. our everyday work is bound up in the hydrological cycle. i'm going over not so much why we should care but how we should care about climate change, how we should approach evaluating the issue. we are approaching this on a timer rise in which matches up with the way we think. most apartments have capital programs. frequently, we think of capital improvement programs, large
buy at your store, and it has a big role. it protects public health. however, its primary use for us is disinfection. disinfection of drinking water and also the treatment of water. it is also used for odor control in our waste water collection system. so it will be this last piece that i will be focusing the discussion on today. this was question a lot in the media, so i will talk about that in one piece. i should note that it is one of the many methods that we used to combat odor in waste water. so where do we use this? on the charts year, about 50% of the sodium hypochlorite is used for disinfecting water. about 30% is used for disinfecting and treating waste water, and the remaining amount is used for over control -- odor control. it is not the only chemical we use. we also use peroxide and a ferriss solution -- ferous -- ferrous solution. they are cite specific. this is basically from where the odors are coming from. you want to know what this costs. that is what you are looking at there. while the total chemical addition has gone down, you will note that for sodium hypochlorite

, mayor edwin lee, thank you, general counsel, for spending some time with us. he is here every year with us. now this year we have not only mayor edwin lee, as an historical time in san francisco. we have four asian-american members of the board of supervisors with us. as a representative of district 3, i could not be more happy to introduce my district supervisor, the president of the board, supervisor david chiu. [applause] >> good evening, everyone. it is an honor to be with you tonight. i want to wish everyone a happy year of the rabbit. unless you are vietnamese, in which case, i was a very happy year of the cat. after 160 years, this year is truly history. i am honored to serve with you, not just with the diversity that our board of supervisors represents -- and i want to thank ross mirkarimi, david campos, and malia cohen who are here with us today -- but it is an honor to serve with three other asian-american supervisors. we finally reflect the population statistics that we have here in san francisco. more importantly, it was an incredible honor earlier this year to take par
by either -- a different type of examination according to the top of power that we use. the previous gentleman was mentioning about how steam loops are a bad thing, and in the traditional fashion, they probably are. an apartment or units or development, instead of a traditional water boiler, a steam heater, whatever, yes, you are burning fossil fuel, but you are getting a 85% sun, 87% efficiency, instead of the below 50% efficiency is -- but you are getting a 85%, 87% efficiency, instead of the below 50% efficiency if you are using natural gas. i do not think we will get rid of that in the next 10 years, but i would really encourage you to move this as it is, and, believe me, on march 24, the next task force meeting, we are really hoping that is our last meeting, because there were two things that we were tasked with, including closing power plants, so it would really make my day. thank you. president vietor: thank you. public comments? any further public comments? i just wanted to clarify this amendment, and with the council's blessing, we can move it. this directs the general manag
-- if there are other groups you would like us to meet with a were other things you would like us to look at, please just let us know. >> commissioners. public comment. >> this is what i came here for so i'm very happy to have stayed around here for it. this is one of my major -- this is kind of like my major area of focus. i really appreciate the work that the waste water enterprise has done. you have a very long way to go. when i walked in, the conversation that commissioner moran was making are similar to those that we have had in the letter. we passed a resolution, one of the first expressed our concerns that the trend towards agreeing and low impact to the element was used and we did not want to make investments without having a specific benefit. one of the members of the technical advisory committee, which is now defunct, which is from seattle public utilities. they have a cost benefit model that they have been using for more than a decade. i don't think that the task force is really the model that you are looking for. this is really a watershed council that you need. he will start with the co
projects and using them for combined heat and power for electricity. there is no problem with taking an existing steam loop or one we know is going to be built. to the extent that this plan would push us in the direction of actually encouraging more steam loops, that is not a good greenhouse gas response, so we would want you to put in language today that says a bit about how we should be focusing on passive heating and cooling, instead of using the archaic methods overpower -- method of steam loops. president vietor: thank you. hello, sir. >> good afternoon. president vietor: congratulations on the power plant. >> thank you. president vietor: you worked hard on that. >> and this would really make my day complete, moving this along. i have been on the power plant taskforce since its inception, and i think that is 11 years now. we pushed hard, and we got the first electric resource plan, an ordinance that made both the department of the environment and the puc -- which was adopted in 2002. since then, we have been encouraging either side or all sides to keep it up. things have changed
, gadhafi is claiming they haven't fired on any civilians. a local doctor tells us the hospitals have been shut down. he says the army shot and killed two colleagues in the main square. even more chilling, when troops encounter wounded residents, they don't take them for treatment. instead, accord to this doctor, the wounded are shot dead. we cannot independently confirm that, but that team from sky news was in an ambulance that was fired upon by government forces. all of these accounts contradicting the government line that there's no uprising and major libyan cities are being held hostage by al qaeda fighters. it also lays bare the claim repeated by one of moammar gadhafi's sons today. >> translator: the leader gave clear instructions that the military doesn't intervene, except in cases where there are vital areas that need to be protected and to be ready in case of foreign intervention. >> none of what you see in zawia or any place else backs that up. yet the regime falsely claims about 100 fatalities, many police officers they say killed by al qaeda or crazed libyan teenagers hopped up

in u.s. treasuries. >> tom: we ask pimco's bill gross why he's bailing out of government debt and where he's putting money now. you're watching "nightly business" report for wednesday, march 9. this is "nightly business report" with susie gharib and tom hudson. "nightly business report" is made possibley: this program is made possible by contributions to your pbs station from viewers like you. thank you. >> susie: good evening, everyone. the world's largest bond fund is betting against bonds. pimco's total return fund has sold off its government bond holdings to zero as of the end of february. tom, this is a strong signal from pimco's flagship fund that it sees little value in owning u.s. treasuries. >> tom: susie, as a result of those bond sales, pimco is sitting on $54 billion of cash. the fund still owns other kinds of bonds. it's holdings are diversified among mortgage bonds, corporate debt, foreign bonds and municipal securities. >> susie: so what's the reason behind the bond fire sale? joining us now: william gross, the founder and co-chief investment officer of pimco. hi, bill, n
, and it has carried us to our destination. have you ever wondered how elevators were -- work? we check out the need outside the elevator using current technology and we learn about the latest destination elevated technology all here in san francisco. we will also visit the machinery where all the behind- the-scenes gears control these incredible machines. we are very fortunate today to have an expert with those who is going to walk us are around elevators in san francisco. can you tell us about the history of elevators in san francisco? the measure -- >> sure. the history of elevator technology evolves with the city. first elevators were installed for moving materials in the 1860's. in the 1870's, the first passenger elevator was installed, and that allowed building heights to go up to about seven floors. starting in the 18 eighties, 1890's, the first electric elevators were installed. that allowed for buildings to go up even higher, even more than 10 floors, and those were the first elevators that became representative of what we consider modern elevators today. >> so the height of buildi

a slaughter or has no not indicd he's willing to act and the senate arms committee believed the u.s. had to show it was full my prepared to step in and showing the prepared to step in and senator kerry said said we failed to act in rwanda and the slowness to react in bosnia and under the first president bush encouraged the shia to do an uprising against saddam hussein and didn't come to their aid as well and there are all kinds of ghosts haunting the error and president obama is very cautious at his core that every time the united states has gone into intervene in the middle east there's been a long-term consequence to the perception of our position that's been negative. >> charlie: ann marie, tell me what the options are. >> the first best option is a negotiated solution that gets qaddafi and his family out of office and out of the country and that is actually still a possibility on the table. he made an offer, obviously it's hard to know who's saying what but the fact is we've been putting a lot of pressure on him both outside the country in terms of sanctions and in terms of diplomati
, 65 pages and it has a very detailed cd. what this starts is how many of us can tell us the fundamentals of climate and weather change. most of us, one man? then you don't need to read this. the fundamentals of that we learn listening to the radio or watching the weather man and that's not good enough for us because we have to learn the hand gauge because we don't want to sit around feeling unnerved when someone says sea levels can go 25 feet. that's not where leaders take others. we have to know what's real and in the range of possibility. so this report is the best primer on what is effective climate. secondly, we all here about the poles shrinking in antarctica, based on this you see they play a bigger roll with respect to water and reflection from the sun. there are things you need to know. we don't need fearful people. many of us are managers that make hard decisions in investments we need to be empowered and knowledgeable. this looks at a state of the art of what's fake, real , fact or fiction about global warming. we have to make up indecisions, it may go 25 fee

that help us to get to that wholesale market change that needs to happen to become greenhouse gases -- gas free. and these others fall under the heading to make sure that san francisco continues its reliable service, and you can see those listed there. we are building on some policies the commission recently adopted with respect to environmental justice and community benefits, as well. as i mentioned, this plan was through an extensive public process, where we had meetings with our clean energy storages, we had several hearings before the board, -- clean energy stewards, we have had hearings before the board, and we have had subcommittee meetings. lafco. we have come to you today, and we are looking for you to endorse this plan being delivered to the board of supervisors for their endorsement of the overall goals. we are also looking for -- commissioner torres: when is that going to be presented? >> it will not be presented unless you release us to do so. i am here to ask you to do that. commissioner torres: is authorization is provided, when do you plan to do that -- if authorization is p
is the cultural art director. tell us what moad's mission is. what does it do? >> the museum of the african diaspora showcases the history, art, and cultural richness that resulted from the dispersal of africans throughout the world. we do that through compelling and innovative exhibitions, public programs, and education programs. our goal is to celebrate and present for appreciation to our broad and diverse public the controversial energy contributions of people of african descent to world culture in all aspects in all areas, including politics, culture, economics, education, just in all aspects of cultural forms of expression. >> one of the fascinating things since 2005 when the museum was established, is that it has become clear from science that all of humanity originates in africa. how does that influence the education programs or presentation here at moad? >> obviously, being able to attenuate that, and there is a sign at the door that says, "when did you know that you were african?" our point is that we share a common dna, and it connects us on a number of different levels. this inst
. there are a number of initiatives that are helping us to understand our own vulnerability locally. i will move forward to the costs. the commission asks how much we are spending on this climate change resilience work. those costs are summarized to a large degree here starting with the most expensive item which is the single adaptation item. this is estimated at about 10- $20 million which is pending any future design work that my show that that figure needs to be changed. we have done some investing in a white papers that have been very educational for us with the water utility climate alliance and the calibration budget. each of these had been left wrist by significant investments from other places and i think it illustrates one of the advantages with the coalition that we have been doing. we can make an investment and understanding better these issues and follow that with many investments from others that make the project program and our understanding that much more robust. we have money coming into the project to bring these people together to do the work. what is not included are the soft
it is also good to be able to look at there could be a matter that could be provided about the use of margin. i am not sure that is something how that is being done anywhere with refuse. i think it will be a useful thing to look at. the scope seems to be a bit narrow. it is outside of what is currently being done, but there are some opportunities that could have a good impact on city infrastructure. there are opportunities that we might see, a lot of barging being done. those will go away. perhaps this way we could make use of the barge for the next hey phase possibly close to a land fill site. what we had before us is that they will contract with trucks to go across the bay bridge to a site in the oakland and have the rail. is there a way to do that? the other question, if that is something that can be included in the scope of the work, what is the impact to the public infrastructure? we know that the port is struggling to build infrastructure. it will be to where it will be hauled out or wherever. there is a way to -- especially at the site where the distribution center will be a

. this panel invited us into a very unsettling way of framing the discussion those of us steeped the fight. we assume this is inevitable and we're focussing entirely on how to respond to it's impacts. this is a discussion that we absolutely must have because we're in a race against time. as we know, we're already feelg the impacts of global warming and things going to get worst before better so its the job of global managers to plan for the worst and that's what we're here to talk about today. among the issues, what impacts are we most concerned about, what adaptations are necessary and what models or in the analysis are they planning to do and what initial things do they need for future decisions. our discussion takes place against a political backdrop here in california where leaders in both parties recognized the importance of including global warming in our strategies you know the governors water proposal called for 4 and a half billion dollars. sites reservoir and tell mperance river. together these would provide five hundred thousand acre feet of water supply but their being promoted as
not justify actions using climate change without the science to support them unless their justified for other reasons. i'm going to poke a bear here - a big bear - but he's not in the room so can't kick me out. the governor proposed two new surface reservoirs in california and the large part of the back up justification was issue of climate change and the terrible impact on storage. people are not doing to believe this, not opposed to new damages but i'm apposed to amdams. i think it's a great way to evaluate new,dams or possibilities for them in california it's not good enough reason to build them and that's an important distinction. ironically we're having this same debate in nuclear power. climate change is a great thing to open the debate for nuclear power but by itself, not a good argument to build new nuclear power plants. there's economics, basic global problems, things that have not disperiod. >> climate change is a new justification for doing assessment but not necessarily an argument for doing certain large investments and building things and we have to be careful about building in
